Sunday saw my first pre-wedding or ‘engagement’ shoot of 2018, a trip to Wells-next-the-Sea to spend some time with the lovely David and Kirsty. These 2 gorgeous people are getting married on 16th August this year (the date that the very best couples get married 😂 – our own anniversary!) and wanted some natural, relaxed images with a more wintry vibe than hopefully their summer weddings ones will have. I’m not going to get around to editing this full set for a week or 2, so here is a little sneak peek to tide them over.
As you’ll see, considering Sunday was very blustery and had a ‘feels like’ temperature of -3, we got pretty damn lucky! Having delayed from Saturday because of bad weather an alert from the ‘Dark Sky’ App on my phone (if you like to get the most accurate minute-to-minute precipitation alerts, this App is a must – scary accurate!) as we arrived in Wells we opted to not head out immediately and took refuge in the cafe. Apart from delaying the shoot by a day, this was the best decision we made – it CHUCKED it down for about 10 mins while we stood in the packed cafe catching up and talking through a few top tips for getting some cool shots.
Well, hopefully, you’ll agree that David and Kirsty definitely took it all on board and look effortlessly absolutely stunning in this wintry North Norfolk scenery. Our afternoon involved a walk through the beautiful woodlands, scoring some crazy light momentarily as the sun peaked through the trees for us, before heading onto the beach for some sea, dune and beach-hut back-drops before charging back towards the car park to grab some of the very last light of the day as the sun managed a last hurrah a minute of 2 before ducking below the horizon. All-in-all, an absolutely brilliant engagement shoot and a wonderful omen for David and Kirsty’s Norfolk wedding day in August. Having got to know them a little over this couple of hours. and seen how completely natural and fun they are together, I know their wedding day is going to be an absolute treat and that we’re going to have a lot of fun.
So, as I head away from the editing for a few days, just a small taster of some images that will be heading to David and Kirsty when I get around to the full edit. Many, many more magical moments to come.
